that president obama is moving forward.t i them jerry brown seeps this as canoe theory that he's practiced before. i will tell you, i think those vie taupes and a lot of other decisions were all done with an caeye toward a coalition for th election. we felt it in sacramento that the governor was making decisions that were trying to set him up with what he thought was the best constituency at the polls. i think the voters have a choice to make about whatey issue they care most about what they have to mark that ballot on tuesday and i will say if we've looked at the wa voter registration has increased, we've seen a lo of voters, we think are young vot voters, and those young voters, they really are a mor diverse group ethnically. more diverse financially than a lot of the other voters in california. maybe that includes the latino community, as well. it's a great questi.es >> belv well, have any of you heard anything about the attitude of people about the amount of money coming into the state, anybody at the table? >> i know in the presidential ration, this has been a really interesting thing to wa
